Climbing lima beans
Forest of “fall” tomatoes

Last month’s harvest weighed in over 400 lbs for a total of 4,752lbs. Though we are far from reached our ambitious goal of 10k this year, it will be just enough to get our annual norm of 6k given how bad the year was in terms of weather and bugs.

November is month set for major garden projects here on the urban homestead. A time when we gear up for the next major planting season in spring. Back in 2005 we singlehandedly took out the 30′ x 30’f t concrete slab
